Klean Kanteen Supports America's Cup with Sustainable Initiatives

Awareness and education about ocean health and plastic pollution have always been near and dear to Klean Kanteen's mission and goals. That's why were proud to join the 2013 America's Cup, who committed to delivering a single-use plastic bottle-free event, in providing spectators with convenient, free water refill stations for reusable bottles. A 160 year-old tradition, the 34th America's Cup features the best sailors in the world racing the world's fastest boats, and in 2013 took place in the San Francisco bay.

"Both the America's Cup and the city of San Francisco have taken a very progressive stance on single-use plastic and we’re proud to help provide spectators with sustainable solutions," says Scott McGuire, Director of Sales and Marketing at Klean Kanteen. "We're also perfectly aligned with the America's Cup in their efforts to educate the public about the threats of plastic pollution in the oceans. As a truly global event, the America's cup is setting a new benchmark for its commitment to sustainability."

America's Cup Healthy Ocean's Project

America's Cup Healthy Ocean Project

The 34th America's Cup Healthy Ocean Project was a Global "Call to Action" Campaign that embraced the connection between sailing and the ocean. The overall goal of the Healthy Ocean Project was to create awareness around the problems that face the ocean and inspire individual action around the solutions that exist. They focused efforts on three core issues – Marine Protected Areas, Sustainable Seafood and Marine Debris/Plastics. America's Cup wanted to spread an understanding of what sustainable seafood means and how to find it; and encourage everyone who eats seafood to choose wisely for the sake of ocean and their own health.
